Outdoor Water Efficiency Program
Sprinkler Smart Program is a partnership between Central Arkansas Water and The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, Pulaski County. The program provides education to homeowners, and irrigation/landscape contractors in Pulaski County to be more efficient with outdoor watering practices. The program offers educational workshops and free sprinkler system audits for residents of Pulaski County. Not only can homeowners conserve water, they can reduce their water bill. The average savings for audit participants is $48 through the summer watering season. To schedule a workshop or a sprinkler system audit contact Mark Brown CEA-Water Conservation/Horticulture.
